Problem with subversion tags

Hi every body,
I've installed subversion to try it because it offers many features that cvs
While I'm very satisfied by those features, i can't find others that exist
in cvs and that were essential to me.

For example, in my firm we (developers) used to use cvs like that:
- On one side we have the repository.
- On the other side every one has it working copy.

Commits and updates are done frequently and we communicate a lot so that
conflicts don't often appear and when they appear we solve them manually.
When we have decided that a file is stable we tag it like that:
cvs tag -F STABLE myfile.

When we want to publish a new version, a script will get a working copy
composed by files with 'STABLE' tag.
In this way, we can continue to work on our files while we are sure that
only files with STABLE tag are put in production.

I want to reproduce the same behaviour with subversion. But in subversion it
seems that I have to create a directory in the directory named 'tag'. When
I'm trying to create it from the repository or from a working copy, things
work fine. But when I want to create a tag with mixed revisions, i just
don't know how to do it.
Does any one have more information?

Best regards,

PS: For the subscribers of 'svn@subversion.tigris.org', i'm sorry to have
post this message to he commit list. :(
